How much does a website cost? This is usually the first question a prospective client asks any website builder, myself included. It is a reasonable question, to know the price of something before you proceed any further, but it’s not “one-type-fits-all” service and it will normally require some more information before we can quote an accurate price.
Mobile-friendly web design started to become important a number of years ago, as more people started to use tablets and smartphones, and it is now considered essential that when you build a website, you have to ensure it is mobile-friendly /responsive.
The best website design strategy is now WordPress website design, which has been growing in popularity over the last few years. In this post, I will try to explain why.
Once you’re satisfied with your website design and structure, the next step is to attract traffic so you can sell your product or advertise your services. An SEO agency skilled in modern SEO practices (search engine optimisation) is key to getting your website listed on the first pages of search results.
User-centered web design or web solutions is a web design principle which stipulates that the experience of the end user (i.e. the person viewing the website) should dictate how the website is constructed. Put simply, it is the experience of the user which should come first when making design decisions, rather than visual or aesthetic concerns.
Today the terms website designer and website developer are often used interchangeably. But the two roles require very different skills.
So you’ve got your new website, it performs well and it looks great. Now how do you get people to visit your site and start generating revenue? This is where you need an SEO expert.
Web design requires a certain amount of artistic ability, combined with a specific technical skillset. When you are searching for a web designer to build your website, you need to consider these aspects, and more.
A question often asked these days is “Is your website responsive?”. What does this even mean?
A responsive website is one which is built on a grid framework (such as Bootstrap or Foundation) and is therefore able to “respond” to different display sizes.
In an era when it is relatively easy for a non-technical person with little or no coding skills to create a functioning website, many people will say that your web design is irrelevant as long as your your website works, i.e. if it displays information and performs a number of basic functions, then that is sufficient. However, if you follow this route you may be selling you or your business short. Design still matters, more than you might think.
